Donnie Walsh: Mike D’Antoni’s Job is Safe

After STAT ripped the team, Walsh did his best to hold off the hounds when it comes to Mike D’Antoni’s gig, telling the fans and media to be patient. From the NY Times: “I’ve made no judgment on Mike in the first few years, basically because I didn’t think he had the personnel to compete because of what we were doing,’ said, Walsh, who is expected to be away from the team as he recovers from hip-replacement surgery this week. ‘This team is a young team that has to be brought along a certain way. He’s trying to do that. In the first 10 games, I expected that we would be up and down, and we have. So I don’t think it’s time for me to make judgments on Mike.’

    I’ll make judgements for Donnie: D’Antoni is arrogant, stubborn and not the right coach for this team. Then again, Donnie hasn’t done a great job either.

    Why would anyone who knows anything about NYC basketball think he would have been a good fit at the Garden? Terrible hire. Ship him out. We don’t need any of what he brings to the table. If we’re going to lose, I’d rather we do it playing New York basketball. We can scrap our way to respectability with the right coach and team of assistants. We need to get our IDENTITY back. HE’S GOT TO GO. DONNIE TOO!

    You gotta win with what you bring. Coaches should be hired based on the capabilities of the players on the roster. Hiring coaches with a distinct style hoping that players matching that scheme would follow is just a waste of time.
